At the Vintage Festival 2022, hundreds of people came to the old site of Miranda Distillery to enjoy the wonderful beer, wines and food of Griffith accompanied by live entertainment. The festival, one of Griffith’s major annual festivals, gathers wines from across the region through the Riverina Winegrowers Association on the day of music and light before Easter. This year’s musicians of the festival included DJs Rosario and Cyril, acoustics of Charlie Jones and headliners of the cover band Cherry Bomb. Cherry Bomb delighted the audience with covers of Queen’s song “Crazy Little Thing called Love”, Third Eye Blind “Semi-charmed Life” and KC and “Give It Up” by KC and Sunshine Band, as well as other hits. Of course, most of them were there for wine, and the mood was somewhat dulled due to the long wait for any drinks. Many waited in the sun for more than 45 minutes to have a drink, while others quit their mission halfway to find something else. Participant Peter Proviso said they were among the first to arrive and watch the turnout explode. “We were one of the first to come here, and it’s just a BOOM,” he said before sending his compliments to Yenda Brewery’s offerings. Young participants Matt Craig and Flynn Balerby were in line, but said that even the long wait did not cheer up too much. READ MORE “Ah, the queues are a little long, but the atmosphere is good. The wine is good,” Mr. Craig said. “It’s good to hold events after COVID-19, it’s nice to see young people and get the sun out after it,” Mr Belerby added. Cherry Bomb encouraged the audience to be patient and encouraged the kindness of the organizers, who were busy to make everything go smoothly. Organizer Carra Lymer of the Riverina Winemakers Association said they saw a record turnout that contributed to the lineup. “We have been running the festival since 2017 and have never experienced such a busy year … Like many hospitality and event companies, we have a hard time finding staff,” she said. She thanked the crowd for their understanding and stressed the dedicated work of the staff to keep the case in a tense environment. Looking to the future, she has ideas on how to keep the lines manageable in the future. “There are some measures we usually take, such as longer ‘snake lines’ for drinks … the team has already discussed what we can do next year to ease that expectation again.” “Cross your fingers, we will have a much more normal year in 2023.” Our journalists make every effort to provide local, up-to-date news to the community.
